We are pleased to offer four unique grant opportunities for OSNT beneficiaries, members of The Arc, and others with disabilities. These grants are possible  because the OSNT retains 50% of funds remaining in first-party accounts when the trust beneficiary passes away. Our goal is to use those funds to support the needs and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. 


To qualify for an individual grant, applicants must:

  • be a resident of Oregon or a current OSNT sub-account holder;
  • experience a disability as defined by 42 U.S.C. 1382c(a);
  • demonstrate a financial need and an inability to purchase a disability-related item or service without grant assistance;
  • provide documentation confirming other potential funding sources have been explored, including family contributions;
  • have not been awarded a Remainder Fund Grant within the prior 12 months; and
  • have not received more than $5,000 in remainder fund grants in their lifetime.
In addition to these general eligibility requirements, each grant program may have additional eligibility guidelines.
